Catch Up Time...

Peace and my humble apologies for the lack of updates here on CRDS (I have been busy with life basically and preparing (somewhat) for Fatherhood...so exciting times ahead indeed) anyway...here is a post of some crucial videos and albums, links you may or may not have missed...


Mello Music Group always come through with the dope goods...Multi talented producer L'Orange (who has already released the dope The Night Took Us In Like Family LP) with Jeremiah Jae and the infamous and the supremely out there, man of a million and two aliases Kool Keith deliver an album full of well to be expected off the wall rhymes and great production.





Utilizing vinyl borrowed exclusively from Afrika Bambaataa's historic and genre-defining record collection, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's acclaimed Renegades Of Rhythm set touches down in Oakland, California in this professionally-documented film experience. You're there in the audience as the two DJ's unravel the evolution of Hip-Hop music and culture, using the same artifacts that helped create it. "Not just any records- the MASTER OF RECORDS'
records."

Squires, The Cynic, & Rapswell are​.​.​.​PEN PALS















From the Chopped Herring Records description: 

"Hailing from Brooklyn, Squires [Beat maker], The Cynic [MC] & Rapswell [MC] are...Pen Pals. Dudes hit us up to check their music and honestly yo, we were COMPLETELY blown away. Was this a classic super group using a pseudonym? Q-Tip, Ad-Rock, Edan, Slick Rick, Doppelgangaz with Prince Paul and [lost] Paul C production? It made no sense - how could a first release be SO well put together? There was/is something suspicious about it!! They hit us up with 2 tracks [of the 10 here] and we cut a deal there and then - didn't need to
hear any more. 














The second project is already recorded and will be droppin' ASAP. PURE HERRING YO.......PLEASE ENJOY, RAP FANS..." 
Cop the EXCLUSIVE vinyl :Here

Thaione Davis-Donald Mayhem - SKYWRITTERS

For the past 15 years Thaione Davis has managed to remain steadfast within the ranks of underground hip hop both domestically and abroad. Over these years, he has stayed consistent with his contributions to the essence of the culture, providing a balance of raw grit open face lyricism over progressive boom bap soundtracks.

With this being the release of his 13th studio album, he continues to paint clever wordplay over hard beats and has perhaps created his most comprehensive album to date. As the character Donald Mayhem, aka Donnie May, Thaione engages the listener to take flight on this vivid opus of commentary called SKYWRITTERS. This carefree delivery of urban poetry will truly define why he is often known as a "rapper’s rapper". 

One of the most fluid voices behind the microphone, he effortlessly weaves from braggadocio to social injustice warfare, to nightmare scenarios and even late night adventures on the west side of Chicago.

Incredible and very in depth tribute and and write up on Organized Konfusion's classic LP-Stress: The Extinction Agenda.
